I just received information on the release of Lifter Puller vs The End Of oral history book we mentioned earlier today. Seems that...
--It has been available for purchase since last Friday, and only at Treehouse Records in Minneapolis for a mere $25. They do mail-order (link here).
--It will not be sold via Amazon or a larger book site of Amazon's ilk, but will be available shortly online via Blue Collar Distribution.
--Only 1,000 copies were made.
--With its purchase, you get a card with a code to digitally download the entire Lifter Puller re-releases and Slips Backward. However, the live tracks on each record from 7th Street Entry, the Black Cat, and Triple Rock are not included with that.
--Included are "tons of rare photos, artwork/flyers/posters, complete lyrics, and an oral history of the band as told by people who were there (engineer Dave Gardner, Twin Cities rock ambassador Lori Barbero, Dillinger Four's Paddy Costello, Trenchmouth's Damon Locks, Syd Butler of Les Savy Fav and Frenchkiss Records, Chris Newmyer of Self-Starter Foundation, Dan Cote of Heart of a Champion and Treehouse Records, and more"(Treehouse Records blog).
